Making Use of Fruit Before It Goes Bad

Posted by Cynthia on Sunday, November 1st, 2009 at 3:47 pm.

Do your bananas start to ripen faster than you can eat them? Well here’s an easy and healthy solution to making salvaging them instead of throwing them away.

Get a food dehydrator….it doesn’t have to be anything fancy. We recently purchased one at Wal-Mart for $39.98. Although at first you may think that it’s too much money, but in the long run you’ll save money as well as make healthy snacks for you and your dog.

We have been dehydrating banana slices, apple slices and sweet potato slices over the last couple of weeks and the dogs love it! Not only do we salvage any over-ripened fruit but we save money on buying dog treats. Plus it’s a great way to give your dog an all natural treat!

    How long do the treats last after they’ve been dehydrated?

    We’ve had the sweet potatoes in a jar for a couple of months now and they’re the same as when we first put them in there. We are using one of those de-oxidizer packets though, and that makes them last quite a bit longer. As long as you thoroughly dehydrate the food and keep it in a sealed container, it should stay good for quite a while.
